Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. Psalm 46:1
I have always loved these verses, but since my beautiful Andrew went to be with the Lord, I have experienced them everyday and have a far greater understanding of what it means to taste and see and to know that ever-present help.
Losing your spouse or a child is probably the hardest thing anyone has to go through in this life. But can I encourage you today, no matter what it is you are facing or what the future might hold, If you have an intimate relationship with Jesus, He will give you the strength, the peace, the energy, at the time when you need it, not before, not after, but at the moment when you most need it. He will even carry you when you are too weak to walk on your own.
Regardless of whether you are grieving, lost your job, given a bad diagnoses etc. taste and see that the Lord is good.
